    Hello! I am planning to make a new blog. I currently own two domains that are exactly the same. One is .net and another is .org. Which domain should I use? Which one ranks better?

    Thanks!

    I would think both of them would rank very similar, I think it is more import if you have good original content on your site, that will help you rank higher.

    I will put original content only, will build links and stuff and I will redirect one the other one. But, I still don't know what domain should I choose between .net and .org

    It also depends on the product or offering you are making. org works good if you have a network or non profit or do gooder type product. It does not sound so commercial. As to rankings it should make no difference which you choose to use.

    i'd choose .org, the organic results from google tend to show .orgs more than .nets

    You don't gain anything by redirecting one to the other. The only thing that it does is redirect type-in traffic from one to the other. Just throw up a site with a couple of articles on it and links to the main site. Maybe even an autoblog with links to the main site.

    What he said...

    With an additional twist.. Put different themes on them and link to the primary from the idle one. Add the autoblogging, and punch up a coupld entries between the autoblogs pushing your primary blog. Maybe even do an RSS plugin to automate it further.
